Again its "Rimmer" so take it with a grain of salt but they were the only team he mentioned.
Here's Matt Wagner's take on The Cannon blog regarding possible trade with Boston:

Good Stuff....Lucic, Yes please. Never thought Boston would offer him up (maybe still won't). All speculation of course.

CJB: Lucic, Kreji, Prospect (Hamilton) or First rounder.
BOS. nash

IMO, any trade with Boston has to include Hamilton, unless they give us some of their best young roster players (Rask, Seguin, etc....)

I would go with Boston's, as much as I don't want a 'tender back as a centerpiece for Nash, with Krejci in there too, he essentially becomes the "centerpiece". It gives us an immediate upgrade across the board at 2 positions we were weak at last season. San Jose is a very close second, I like the added 1st, Niemi will give us solid tending for a few seasons and Clowe immediately gives us more "life" on the ice, Washington and Nashville's packages would be very distant thirds.

Honestly, trading Nash to another Central Division team should be by overpayment only, as far as I'm concerned.

Boston's package would be best. Points wise Nash and Krecji are equal. Rask is ready for a starting opportunity. Take this now.

Didn't Nashville offer something along the lines of Wilson, Ellis, Lindback, 1st at the deadline? Its a shame Nash won't go there. That deal beats the **** out of the Rangers offer.

They won't offer Rask....unless they are morons. It doesn't make sense to trade a top tender like that when TT is about to reach 40 years old.

I'd rank 'em in the order presented above. Boston's isn't ideal, but it's workable. I'd want more from San Jose, but it's not necessarily a deal-breaker. The Nashville offer is poor quality - throw in Wilson at a minimum. And that Washington offer is laughable at best and disgustingly pathetic at worst.

Alright, thanks for the feedback everyone...

I read on the Bruins Board that they wouldnt mind trading Rask because many feel Khudobin can become a good goalie under Thomas. I've also read that they are not high on Krejci. They call him slow and demand a better all-around game from him. So perhaps the Boston proposal isnt too far off.

Nonetheless, the point of my earlier post was to propose deals that centered around acquiring a goalie, adding a roster player, and possibly a pick too.

Again, thanks everyone.

Also, would this SJ package be more appealing? Nash for Pavelski and Niemi.... or is having Clowe and a 1st round pick plus Niemi better from your perspectives?

I would take Boston's offer. Fan of both players.

I see none. Listen, the Ducks problem is at second line center and Nash doesn't help with that. Both teams would have similar problems because, quite frankly, Ryan and Nash are similar players--streaky goal scorers.

If you really wanted Bobby Ryan, a package based around Ryan Johansen plus one or more other pieces of value would be of more interest than Rick Nash.

The Jackets were offered a current roster player, not a "second tier prospect" and the team wasn't the Rangers.

If the Bruins offer was for real, yes, it'd be the best of this sorry lot. With that said, I don't by the B's trading Rask rumors. If the Bruins are smart, they trade away Thomas and prepare for the future.

I don't have any great interest in Niemi and Clowe is a role player. We can get a better player from SJ, so I see no need to take such a low offer.

The other two are just garbage. Just because they include questionable goalies doesn't mean we'd jump at them.

Nice work but this is the problem. Goalies are such a roll of the dice - making one the focal point of a Nash trade is folly. This is why the Boston trade above is the best - because the "rest" of the deal is better.

No issue with getting a goalie in a Nash trade, but not as the centerpiece.

Pavelski and Niemi is way more appealing than Clowe, Niemi, 1st.

Its more appealing, It actually closes the gap with the Boston deal because that while Rask COULD provide steady tender play for a decade, Niemi WOULD provide it immediately for a few seasons. I do like what seems to be a more concerted effort to focus the "leadership group" around US-born players.

If this hypothetical deal included the 1st rounder, I'd take San Jose's offer over Bostons.

Krejci and Rask........winner, winner, chicken dinner.

You offer a #1 goalie and a top 6 skater and its a deal.

Was just reading the trade board and the idea of Krejci, Thomas, 1st for Nash was brought up. The deal here (Krejci+Rask) is one I'd definitely take, but I'm wondering what the opinion is on the other offer. Does Thomas+1st=Rask? Personally, Id want a nice prospect along with that, because it is a late 1st and Thomas may only have 2 years left in him. Not necessarily Dougie Hamilton, but maybe someone like Khoklachek? Not too familiar with the Bruins' prospect pool...

Boston offer great, the rest terrible. I'd rather have an unhappy Nash for 7 years than that trash.

Get Harding to sign in the offseason with us.


Nash + Prospect not named Johansen/Moore/Savard/Atkinson/Calvert

For

Krejci + Lucic + Khudobin + 1st?

Lucic + Dorsett on a line would be fun to watch.
